Thinking Minute Man, but the rose dial is making it Unknown for me.

I like this one. Perspective is my challenge here. The straight on face shot shows the curve of the case that the side angle shot in the ad does not.

Having said that, I too think it's the Minute man. Stephen, the advert says available in rose, my assumption is that a rose gold case would come with this dial color.

Thanks Geoff, I missed the 'pink' text and would agree with you that a rose gold dial would be the norm on a rose gold case.

Tentative Minute Man for me.

I believe the minute man is engraved on the bezel top and bottom....

still down with 'MINUTE MAN' for several reasons.

1. Of all of the Pink examples personally seen to Date none have been engraved on the bezel horizontal sections.

2. The current database already contains an exact duplicate of the subject Watch previously ID'd as the 'MINUTE MAN'.

3. The Glass is not shown to fit any other Model prior to 1949.

 

The MyBulova  ID rating system is set up in such a way as to inform the viewer of the particular strength of  any Watch model ID.

2 Checks: a Tentative ID.  (We think it is)
